This coming Sunday (UTC) is the second annual Ten-Meter RTTY Contest! It
will be a lot of fun that you won't want to miss. It is also a great
warm-up for the ARRL 10-Meter Contest the following weekend and the ARRL
RTTY Round-Up in early January. Last year's inaugural event received nearly
700 logs with nearly 2500 unique callsigns. Congratulations to the plaque
and wine award winners!
See www.rttycontesting.com/tenmeterrttycontest.html for the rules and last
years results. In a nutshell the contest uses the ARRL RTTY Round-Up rules,
- 10 meters only
- Low Power only, 100 watts maximum (High Power classified
- 24 hours total time, no required breaks (2 December UTC)
- Packet assistance allowed for Single Op
If your logging software doesn't directly support the Ten-Meter RTTY
Contest, just use the ARRL RTTY Round-Up choice. No formal practice is
scheduled beforehand because the TARA Melee is held the day before on 1
December and can be used to prepare for this contest.
We look forward to working you on Sunday!
